U for Uniform – 25 April ANZAC Day. Lest we forget.
On ANZAC Day we often hear the phrase “Lest we forget”. It’s to remind us not to forget the ultimate sacrifice so many made to protect our freedom.

Each ANZAC Day we stop and remember the men and women that sacrificed to protect our freedom. Many never came home like my fathers uncle, Francis Kitto, who died in WWI of the Spanish Flu. I’m definitely most fortunate my father survived, coming back to live in New Zealand. About 10 years after the war he married and started a family.
